A shunting mishap, Eastleigh, 22nd August 2019

I was not paying much attention to 08511 which shunted a very long rake of MHA / MPA (Ballast / Spoil Open Box) and Auto Ballaster wagons. It stopped and paused at this point at 13:05. I did not really make any further vigilance.

 Walking up the platform, a group of orange hi-viz clad men had just spent some time looking at the incident, which appeared to be points related, at 14:19.

From the Lidl viewpoint, one axle of MPA 394330 is off the road. This appears likely to have been a jacking job to get back on the rails, but I had to go at this point.
